Snow to spread across 12000 mile long corridor of United States

 Thursday, December 8, 2022 


The powerful storm that snarled travel in the West this past weekend and has the potential to cause flooding in the Mississippi and Tennessee valleys through Thursday will put down a swath of accumulating snow from Nebraska to Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania this week.

A smaller, separate storm could bring a burst of snow in parts of the Northeast at the end of the weekend to early next week as well.

The initial storm system will graze Chicago and Detroit and produce some snow in both cities prior to the end of this week, but it will stop short of reaching New York City through Saturday.

This powerful storm will not be a blockbuster in terms of snowfall accumulations, but some heavily populated and well-traveled interstates are in line to pick up a few inches of snow. As a result, motorists could have to deal with slippery road conditions.

Exactly where the band of snow settles will depend on the storm’s track, how much cold air arrives from Canada and whether a warm area of high pressure from the Gulf of Mexico can put up any resistance.

The meteorologists first identified the potential for snow in this region last week and have since tweaked their forecast to zero in on the corridor of the Midwest and Northeast where snow is most likely.

This area of snow is forecast to extend from Nebraska to southern Wisconsin and the northern tier of Illinois before shifting to part of the lower Peninsula of Michigan to southwestern New York and the mountains of Pennsylvania.

Motorists should be prepared for wintry conditions along interstates 29, 35, 39, 80, 90 and 94 in the region during this time when the lack of sunlight and heaviest precipitation rates coincide.
